What Our Customers are Saying



"We found all of the employees with whom we in contact from the sales representative to the installers to be knowledgeable and professional. All our questions were answered satisfactorily which is why we decided panels installed. We were also impressed with the company’s A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.” – Pat S. – Boston


"Our first two bills were approximately $300.00 less than before and our third bill, just received was down about $250.00 from what we were paying! We think it is fantastic!" - William R. - Waltham MA


"They did a wonderful job on my system and I would recommend them to my family and friends!" - Georg S. - Chicopee MA

I cannot express my gratitude for going forward with solar panels. From the initial meeting to discuss the possibility to the techs who eventually installed them. But most of all, it is the savings we have experienced. That first month was unbelievable. Solar plus our other electric source combined was less than our usual monthly expense. During the summer when our electric usage is higher because of the air conditioning, our monthly expense was still less than what we have paid with past summer usage. And if that’s not enough…our present electricity is primarily supplied by the solar panels. We have been building up a reserve with our other electricity source and will be able to draw from that all winter when our panels wont’t generate as much electricity. It’s a win-win situation that we’re just thrilled over. Having a fixed rate locked in is another great feature for savings.” – Virgil T. – Westport MA

About Solar Energy

Solar power is energy from the sun that is transformed into thermal or electrical energy.

Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable resource source available, and the United States has some of the richest solar resources worldwide. Modern innovation can harness this energy for a variety of usages, consisting of producing electricity, supplying light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial usage.

Solar Benefits

Solar power makes it possible for house owners to utilize the sun to power daily life: running your air conditioning system, cleaning clothes, watching TV, cooking dinner. All while lowering your carbon footprint, and without burning fossil fuels or putting a strain on the electrical grid. And while the environmental advantages of solar power are considerable, many home owners discover that the convenience, special features, and cost savings of owning a solar power system are a lot more alluring.

Top 10 Benefits of Solar Energy

#1 Significantly lower or even remove your electric expenses

Whether you're a property owner, organization, or not-for-profit, electrical power expenses can comprise a big part of your regular monthly expenditures. With a solar panel system, you'll create free power for your system's entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you do not produce 100 percent of the energy you take in, solar will reduce your utility costs and you'll still conserve a lot of loan.

#2 Earn a terrific return on your investment

Solar panels aren't an expense-- they're one of the very best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity expense savings, the average American homeowner pays off their photovoltaic panel system in seven to 8 years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

#3 Protect versus rising energy costs

Among the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the capability to hedge utility costs. In the previous ten years, domestic electrical power rates have gone up by an average of three percent yearly. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electrical energy rate and protect against unpredictable boosts in electrical energy costs. If you're a service or house owner with rising and falling capital, going solar also helps you better projection and manage your expenses.

#4 Increase your home worth

Multiple studies have actually found that houses equipped with solar energy systems have higher residential or commercial property worths and sell more rapidly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into factor to consider as they value houses at the time of a sale, and as property buyers become more educated about solar, demand for homes geared up with photovoltaic panel systems will continue to grow.

#5 Boost U.S. energy self-reliance

The sun is a near-infinite source of energy and an essential element of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capability to produce electrical energy from the sun, we can likewise insulate our nation from rate fluctuations in global energy markets.

#6 Create jobs and assist your regional economy

According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry added tasks at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the general U.S. economy in 2015, representing 1.2 percent of all jobs in the nation. This growth is expected to continue. Due to the fact that solar-related tasks tend to be higher paying and can not be contracted out, they are a considerable contributor to the U.S. economy.

#7 Protect the environment

Solar is a great method to lower your carbon footprint. Buildings are accountable for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the United States, and going solar can significantly reduce that number. A normal residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four lots of carbon emissions each year-- the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

#8 Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability

Sustainability and corporate social duty are essential elements of an organization's culture and values. They likewise produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are acknowledging and rewarding organisations that opt to operate responsibly. Services are discovering that "green" credentials are an effective chauffeur of customer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and enhancing organisation results.

#9 Start Conserving from Day 1

Solar purchase power arrangements (PPAs) and solar leasing has actually made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no cash down.

Numerous house owners select to fund their photovoltaic panels with among the "pay-as-you-go" funding options. This suggests that a third-party company-- the solar supplier-- owns the planetary system and looks after installation, upkeep, monitoring and repair works. You merely pay the solar provider for electrical energy-- less than you would've paid the utility business.

Since June 2013, 75% of all American homes have access to pay-as-you-go solar.

#10. Solar is a Secure Investment

The energy companies are infamous for their fluctuating and unreliable electrical power costs. There is plainly an upward trend.

With solar panels and easy math, we can calculate just how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at exactly what rate, for at least the next 20 years (repaired energy expenses).

Frequently Asked Questions

Government Grants For Solar Panels? A Couple Questions...?
1. Are There Grants? 2. Who Are They From Fed, State, Power Companies? 3. How Much Are They? Do They Just Pay A Percent Or An Certain Amount? 4. Do You Have To Get Certain Solar Panels That Are Certified Or That The Grant Givers Have Chosen Or What? 5. What Makes Solar Panels Certified?

Few places in the USA have outright grants, but all have the federal tax credit, and some have additional state and local incentives.

Check your area at this site:
http://dsireusa.org/

In general, it's a percentage of the price you pay. In the most favorable areas, it can be 1/2 or 2/3 of the cost of a system.

The Federal program is rather liberal. Your system must power your primary residence (or heat water for the same), and pass local building codes. Other than that, you can use whatever your jurisdiction allows. Usually, a water heater that you just made out of black plastic tubing, or a photovoltaic panel that you homebrewed out of discarded solar cells will not pass local codes.

Some states like California have lists of approved equipment for rebates:

How To Utilize Solar Energy For Homw Use?
Kindly Send Me References For The Utilization Of Solar Energy For Home Use Like To Generate Electricity, To Use It For Heating Up Water Bath Etc. I Want To Do All The Project On My Own. Your Support Will Be Highly Appreciated.

Solar energy can used in many ways. we can use this energy by putting solar panels in our houses and we can generate this energy like we have heard of things like solar geezer , solar cooker , solar lights etc. if we use solar energy in this way then we can also preserve our natural resources.
some uses for solar energy would be telling time with sun dial, cooking, pumping water, purifying water, heating water (pools), and to heat air.
Solar Energy is used mostly in places where there is a lot of sunlight. It is used in power plants in warm sunny climates, and on houses in around the same places. They are solar paneled houses which can be anywhere. Basically, solar energy can be found anywhere there is sunlight. It will work better with more sunlight though.

How Much Are Solar Panels??
Where Can I Get Them From???? I Live In La Cali If That Helps....

well...based on what answers you received you need some cash to buy them! but solar panels are made of solar cells which cost about 1$ each. solar cells can be monocrystalline and polycristalline(they are made of silicon). monocrystalline cells can perform better at lower light but are more expensive. a solar panel made of 50 cells can produce 25 volts and about 70 watts or more(each cell produce 0,5 volts) you can find solar cells cheap on ebay and they come with what you need to assemble them. you can find youtube videos that show you how to build solar panels and its verry easy! do not change your mind about using solar panels! they are efficient and you can build a 50 cell panel for about 100$ good luck there and do this. do not be afraid of failure. here is a video for you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LNihKhhbGQ and another video to make you understand about solar cells http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Caf1JIz4X2I

How Long Do Solar Panels Last?

lose efficiency over time, 15 to 20 years which is slightly shorter than how long it takes them to pay for themselves...or until the first hailstorm.
